  • a The arrows indicate upregulation (arrow pointing up) or downregulation (arrow pointing down) of the phenotype of the mutant compared to the phenotype of Salmonella serovar Typhimurium UMR1. A moderate effect is shown by one arrow, and a large effect is shown by two arrows. No arrow indicates no difference compared to the wild-type UMR1.
